Zinox goes live in Ghana, eyes West African PC market
Chairman of Zinox Technology, Leo Stan Ekeh says he has his eyes on expanding the reach of Nigeria’s leading PC maker across other West African nations as the company last week launched its brands in Ghana.
Ghanaian media reports last week quotes Ekeh that the expansion of the Zinox business train will soon into other parts of the sub-region to assist their governments extend information and communication technology (ICT) among the populace.
"As we all know, no nation can claim to be independent without technology independence. Zinox to us is a spiritual responsibility to deliver Africa in the emerging knowledge economy, and we have delivered so far in Nigeria, now in Ghana and moving to Sierra Leone, Liberia, Guinea, Gambia and others soon”, says Ekeh.
Zinox's emergence in Ghana, after Nigerian rival, Omatek, is because of the West African nation’s strong economic growth which has created an enabling environment for investment and expansion of ICT in the economy.
The Zinox chief says the launch of the PC brand in Accra last Wednesday expands the company’s footprint ahead of a sub-regional expansion drive and had given them the opportunity to advance the corporate objectives of their consuming passion.
It was also a way of keeping faith with the pan African vision of the founding fathers of Ghana, through the provision of a technology platform to harness and actualise the collective aspirations of Africans, says Ekeh.
Zinox employs about 200 people in Ghana with 90 per cent being indigenous Ghanaians. Zinox computers are the only Microsoft Authorised OEM Partner in West Africa, Intel’s largest premier partner in sub-Saharan Africa, and the first and only certified system built in sub Saharan Africa.
